1. To create paste paper: Add a small amount of Perfect Sparkles to approx.1 tablespoon of Glossy Accents in a mixing cup and stir until well mixed.

2. Apply paste to black paper with stick or palette knife in no certain order.



3. Use a comb or other tool to create texture in the paste. It can help to wipe off the tool in between swipes.

4. Allow to dry thoroughly before cutting or punching out shapes.

5. To make the scrapbook page: Use a decorative scroll punch along top and bottom of the 10-1/4" x 2-1/2" light coral card stock.

6. Attach to 10-1/2" x 2-3/4" dark coral card stock securely with glue stick.



7. Adhere to pale yellow background paper. Add "Trip To" stickers and "Phoenix" die cut lettering.

8. Create two tag-shaped die cuts with dark coral paper. Create one light coral tag also and use the scroll punch on bottom of this tag.

9. Round the edges of the 3-1/2" x 6-3/4" dark coral card stock. Place the light coral tag on the lower part of the dark coral card stock and glue. Make journaling lines above. Glue to mid section of page.



10. Secure the 2-1/4" x 3" black card stock to the 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" light coral card stock. Adhere this to dark coral tag and secure to background page. Do the same with the other tag.

11. Glue on Perfect Luster Paste paper die cuts.
